Ia the Senate, the bill for the distri?
bution of the Geneva award occupied
tho day. Mr. Howe, from the Senate
Committee on Claims, made an elaborate
report npon the President's nessoge in
the oase of the bill relieving J. Milton
Best, whose property at Padaoah was
destroyed for war purposes. The Com?
mittee recommend the passage of the
bill, the veto notwithstanding. In review?
ing tho reasons of the President for tho
veto, the Committee admit that in some
sense the destruction was the ravages of
war, but, in their opinion, the honse was
taken from the olaimant for tho use of
the Government. Tho message asserts,
as n general .principle, both of interna?
tional and munioipal law, that all pro?
perty is hold subject, not only to bo
takon by the Government for public
uses, in which oase, nnder the Constitu?
tion of the United States, the owner is
entitled to just compensation, but also
subject to. bo temporarily occupied, or
even actually destroyed, in times of great
personal danger, and when the publio
safety demands it; and in this latter case,
governments do not admit a legal obliga?
tion on their part' to compensate tho
owner. The Committee, in taking issue
with tho President, say thoy havo not
found any such general prinoiple affirm?
ed, either in international or munioipal
law, but have found the very re?erse to
be affirmed by all law, both international
and munioipal. They quote numerous
legal authorities and several congres?
sional precedents in support of this view.
In reply to the President's caution, that
the payment of this claim would invite
the presentation of demands for very
large sums of money, for necessary and
unavoidable destruction of property by
the army, they say the Aot for the relief
of Dr. Best does not provide for the pay?
ment of property unavoidably destroyed.
On tho contrary, it clearly discrimi?
nates against and disclaims -liability
for any such payment. Mr. Lot M.
Morrlll, of Maine, reported adversely

was held ob Wednesday lost, by the
Coroner, upon the body of one Eleo
Gregg, who, it was shown before the
jury, died from gnn-shot wounds re?
ceived whilst engaged with a raiding
Sarfcy in moving corn from tho barn of
Ir. B. F, Williamson, about 4 o'clock in
the morning of the same day. It seem?
that Elec, with ?otbere, was making a
wholesale raid npon Mr. W.'s barn. The
party had a cart and wagon just outside
of the premises, and were engaged load?
ing them with the' help of baskets and a
sheet, which were found. The party had
made one trip to and from the barn to
the wagon, and were on a second trip to
the barn, when they were discovered by
Mr. Williamson, aoooinpanied by two of
his sons. This littlo party had been
aronsed by the noiso made on the first
trip, and suspecting tho intention of the
raiders, at onoo armed themselves and
started in the direction of tbo burn;
when near enough to see objects moving
about around the open door, o demand
was made upon those at the baru to
"halt," but, Unding out they were dis?
covered, they nt onoo dropped tho sheet
and one basket aud made off in all haste.
Mr. B. F. Williamson aud the party then
advanced and commenced firing. The
anfortunato man ran about sixty }ards
and fell in a cotton row. It was not
known that any one was hit in the party
until he was discovered some time after,
and then he was dead. Oar readers will

the victim of several raids. A few weeks

I L^FAirrs Stabvzd to Death and In?
fants Poisoned for Money.?A letter
to the New York Sun, dated Naples,
January 8, says:
Mrs. B?se Porro has made the follow?
ing blood-curdling confession:
"Trusting that the ignominy which
this declaration will briDg upon me will
be accepted by my merciful Creator in
atonement of my crimes, I, Boso Porro,
truthfully state in the presooce of my
spiritual adviser, that I nm accountable
for the murder of those infants whose
bodies were found in my late residence
by the public officers, on the 13th day of
December. For three years, I pursued
a terrible system of crime, in order to
satiate my greed for money, and I pre?
vailed npon Margarita Coraldi, now in
this prison, to assist me in perpetrating
the crimes of which I stand charged, and
am guilty. I caused advertisements to
be published in Neapolitan journals,
stating that any persons desirous of rid?
ding themselves of their obildren, to
prevent eh&uio und infamy, or for any
oauBo, could procure relief by oalling
upon mo; that I was prepared to take full
charge of their children upon a certain
sum being paid. I required no person
to leave his or her name, and am there?
fore nnable to implicate any of those
parties who encouraged mo to perpe?
trate thoso crimes, for which I crave tho
Divine meroy. As far as I am capable
of remembering, I wilfully starved to
death about twenty children, male aud
female, by looking them in on empty
apartment, whence I could not hear
their ories und whence no others could
hear them. I administered poison at
intervals to about the same number of
babies; and when dead, I, assidted by
Margaret Coraldi, concealed the corpses
below the tiles of the several floors of
my house and beneath the gravel in tho
cellar. These murders only occurred
when I could not rid myself of the in?
fants in auy other way. I adopted an?
other wicked means of procuring gain by
advertising that I could provide childlesB
women with beautiful children for adop?
tion, being compelled to part with them
on account of my poverty. In connec?
tion with tho causes of my crimes, I will
statu that my husband, one Lurgi
Francesco Porro, of Genoa, abandoned
mo without cause when we had been
married only five months. This is one
uf tho grounds upon which I approach
the public authorities to beg their cle?
mency in my behalf. Another is the
unsullied virtue of my early life and the
hopeless poverty and anxiety which fol?
lowed my husband's desertion. Yet an
other ground is the blind, rash ignorance
in which I committed the deplorable
crimes, which I never truly realized the
enormity of until Qod's baud placed me

From the Vatican.?The Pope, the
nther day, received the officers of the
Palatine Guard. His Holiness praised
-their conduct, which he said did not re?
semble the behavior of the inhabitants
)f Pentapolis, who, on the very cvo of
the catastrophe which befell their cor?
rupt city, were absorbed iu heedless fes?
tivity. The fire came and reduced the
city to ashes. The Popo thought that
tho present state of Europe offered an
inalogy to the condition of Pentapolis.
Great misfortunes threatened tho world '
md.Earopo. Bomu and many other cities
were dancing on grouud full of danger.
The Pope afterwards received tho Gene?
rals of tho various religious orders, and
saidi in reply to their address: "It is thej
third time in my life that religious orders j
havo been suppressed. These corpora-!
tions have always been the support of
the church, and it is a dispensation of
God that they should from timo to time
undergo such vicissitudes. This is u
secret of Provideuco which I may not [
unravel, but I strive to sec whether an
angel may not bo coming to aid the
church. I do not sny. that I desire the
destroying angel who visited tho host of
Scnnacherit, in order to save tho chosen
people. No, I havo not that thought.
I wish for an angel who might convert
all hearts. Wo aro in exile; wo must
come before God with the powerful arm
of prayer, in order to obtain, if not what
we wish, at least somo assuagement of
our misfortunes." Tho Popo concluded
by bestowing his benediction on all the
religious orders of tho world.
The Herald comments editorially on

Harlan has not dared to appeal to the
judgment of the Senate aud country
upon his dealings with Darnnt. Cald

baB not tho courage to demand a trial
from the Senate Dawes, Gurlield aud
Kolloy havo not dared to controvert a
simple newspaper statement; a frank and
free statement of tho caso would have
followed tho consciousness of iuuocenco,
but there has been much equivocation
and unmistakable falsehood instead.
Patterson, Colfax, Kelloy and Garfield
are utterly inexcusable, and their cases
demand swift and terrible retribution.
The country demands this of Congress,
and there is no way to evade the duty.
As regards thoso Congressmen who havo I
confessed, the country will bo satisfied
with their resignations. Of Patterson,
the Herald says hois tho worst of all;
worse even, if possible, than Colfax?
but he is beyond any national punish?
ment. Impeachment, it thinks, would
be fruitless, and indicates that expulsion
and disgrace is the true deserts of those
it has mentioned.

Purim.?Esther is the name of the
Biblical book that contains the history of
the Persian Queen of Jewish descent,
Esther. The book is one of the smallest
historical works of the Hebrew Scrip?
ture, and onu of the five, so-called, Me
Igilloth. It is written in remarkably
j correct Hebrew, and distinguished for
its total absence of any reference to God.
It relates how the King, incited by the
vindictive Haman, who was incensed by
the independent spirit of Mordeoai, re?
solved upon the massacre of all the Jews
in his dominions, but was turned from
his evil design by Esther, who saved her
nation at the risk of her life. In com?
memoration of this almost miraculous
salvation of their people, Mordeoai and
Esther introduced the feast of the 14th
Adar, the day of danger and the festival
of Purim, which are still celebrated by
the Jews as days of enjoyment and mirth.
It is customary, with the Israelites of the
present day, to have the Megiiioih read
in their synagogue on the evo of Purim.
